I have been the In-Home Trainer/Behavior Counselor for Kennelwood Pet Resorts since 1989. After 22 years I am now seeing 2nd and 3rd generations of client's dogs. It is gratifying to get referrals from happy clients and their veterinarians. I specialize in aggression cases and separation anxiety cases as well as working to solve other behavior problems. The most common problems I work with are front door manners, chewing, digging, jumping, barking and nipping. I have also helped people with specific training such as teaching their dog to be a ring bearer in their wedding and teaching a dog how to swim and find the steps to get out of the pool. I encourage the whole family, including children, to get involved in the training process.
